PlazesI’m currently playing around with Plazes, a cool little Web 2.0 mapping thingy. So far I like it, but I’m not quite sure why.

What is it? It’s an application that keeps track of places you go, and lets you do a few interesting things whilst you’re there. For example, you can :

  • upload photos of the location (via a Symbian mobile phone), for your contacts to see
  • automatically update your blog with details of the locations you visit

As I said, I like it; but I’m not quite sure why. It holds a similar appeal to presence applications such as Twitter or Jaiku, and is just as addictive. Give it a whirl.
